Hi all just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for what I can use as a kinda privacy curtain. So want it to still let heaps of light in but block the neighbours looking in my daughters bedroom. Lace will not suit our decore . I'm a little bit handy on a sewing machine is that helps
Thanks heaps! Hope I've made some sense!!

Subbing as I have the same issue in the nursery. At present I have a roller blind in white (without the blockout behind it) and during the day it lets in heaps of light but also provides privacy. I also have curtains on the window so of an evening I just close the curtains.
I am considering getting some of those lattice fence extension panels for outside the window as the fence to the neighbours is only about 1.5 meters from the window.
The worst thing is the noise of their (feels like constantly) barking dog right outside the nursery window

You should be able to get plain (non-Lacey) terylene at a fabric store like Spotlight which might do the trick?

You can get plain sheer curtain fabric from spotlight, lincraft, or similar. I have it on my windows.
Probably easier to buy continuous curtains in the drop (length) you want, just measure the width. This will already have the pocket sewn into it for the curtain rod.
Alternatively, I saw lots of eBay stores recently that will make your curtains for you pretty cheaply. If you don't feel like sewing yourself.

I got pre-made sheer voile from Spotlight for my DD's bedrooms. The bedrooms have a big window with a pull down blind but the room looked very stark. The sheer voile really softened the room. It would work perfectly for what you want.
Similar to this, but in one piece because i dont need to open/close it ....http://crazyjoes.com/toronto-sheer-readymade-curtains/
